Here comes the heat! We finished our spring pruning getting ready for heavy growth. Anything that isn’t fruiting was trimmed heavily, even some that are (tamarind, jackfruit). By doing heavy pruning now it allows the spring and summer growth to go where you want it instead of where you don’t! Annona species fruit better when pruned right out of their winter dormancy period. Good spring pruning followed by light maintenance and shaping trims throughout spring and summer keeps trees manageable and productive!
